    For all you tech whizzes. We keep lossing microsofts virtual machine. Why is this ? Is there something to do to keep it permanent. Somewhere along the line VM is getting knocked off.

  3. Hey taodr,
    If you have Sun's Java SDK installed, it might be that there is a conflict for default VM on your machine. There's also some odd stuff going on with VM and Windows XP, check out:
    http://www.microsoft.com/java/

    Is your version of Windows updated?

    If you're running Win 98, you could try to repair Interent Explorer - go to Add & Remove Programs, act as if you want to uninstall IE, at the last popup window there is a selection to repair IE instead of uninstalling it.

    In Windows 2000,goto Add/Remove Programs, select Set Program Access and Defaults, in there you can pick which Java VM is your default.

    Hope this helps,
    Smitty

    win xp and vm does get knocked off. Could it be ip which is cable. Same provider but two different sites.
     
  5. There's a java VM tester here with some helpful info:

    Is the VM getting shut off in Internet Explorer's Internet Options?
    Do you have a pop-up ad stopper running that could be killing JVM? Antivirus software that does script blocking?
